Pattern Description:

This is another vintage pattern brought forward in time. Originally the "Three-Cornered Neck-Handkerchief" from Weldon's Practical Crochet, Sixth Series, c 1890s. "This handkerchief may also be used as a fascinator, or covering for the head."

This pattern has a naturally falling collar which looks quite lovely when worn as a shawlette. You can also thread a piece of ribbon through the open-work and wear this as a pretty head scarf. Once again, we have a truly functional vintage item that can be worn in many ways.

Rated as beginner to easy level. A beginner can adjust the size easily by adding rows. The border has optional beading for added elegance.

The shape is a long shallow triangle.
